Any student who is a U.S. citizen and enrolled in a jewelry program, whether at a university or trade school, can apply for a scholarship. Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need, and they’ll be assessed based on their course of study, career plans, academics, recommendations, and related experience.

All the funds are managed by the Rhode Island Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the MJSA Education Foundation.



Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
